Single Vineyard, Eden Valley Wines of elegance and finesse



2006 Shiraz


Out of stock

The 2006 Shiraz is a deep crimson colour, with an enticing nose of pencil lead, spicy tobacco oak, white pepper and ripe red fruits. The palate is a riot of sweet oak, cherry and red berry fruit characters, the palate awash with luscious, pure fruit weight that ripples with freshness. Powerful, yet perfectly balanced, the wine finishes with fine, lingering tannins. Drink now – 2020.

The 2006 vintage was characterised by high to excellent fruit quality but with only average yields in the Eden Valley. Winter and spring rains were some of the best for years in the lead-up to flowering in early summer, although some varieties, such as riesling and shiraz, suffered more than others from poor fruit set. The summer was mild with southerly winds, reminiscent of 2002. Brief heat waves occurred in late January and mid-February but were early enough not to affect quality, with only minor sunburn on exposed fruit. Mild dry Autumn conditions allowed for the development of wonderfully
balanced fruit quality and flavours.
